Singing in The City- opportunity for Choirs to Perform
We are delighted to inform you of an opportunity for choirs to attend the annual Singing in the City programme celebrating singing and wellbeing. The concert will take place in the South Gallery at the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester on Sunday 8 July from 11.30am-4.00pm.
The programme will be focused on celebrating 70 years of our NHS through the joy of song. All choirs will need to learn a specially commissioned 3 minute song to mark the NHS 70 to enable a joint performance with all choirs for a grand finale. This will mean that choirs who add this to their repertoire will have the potential to participate in other NHS 70 themed events. The organisers will provide access to a music download and all relevant materials. Depending on interest, there may be an additional opportunity for choirs to write their own song to the score which would add a competitive element to the day.
The day will promote singing as a valuable cultural intervention for public and personal wellbeing, linking to the new national and regional social prescribing networks and the National Alliance for Arts Health and Wellbeing.
There will also hopefully be several workshops and other presentations to engage and support singers.
If you would be interested in taking part, please contact Janice Pounds for further details: email@example.com
